Christmas Table Decorations - Candy canes and twine

This year I decided to decorate our Christmas table with a little more thought than usual, Pinterest is the culprit for this! Whilst looking for Christmas crafted gifts, I came across beautiful table decorations which made my crafty brain get a little over excited.

Spuntino - London

Perfectly moody American Tapas.

Whilst visiting London last week with a friend for a spot of Christmas shopping, we stopped off at Spuntino. I've never been before but wanted to go for ages, and I was not disappointed. 
We stumbled across it - the outside was black and difficult to see the name, which gives you a sense of what's to come. 

We walked in to find a tiny place, set out with a bar and seats around it, the lights were dimmed, the music was low, moody and rocky. I loved it! We sat at the end of the bar and was soon greeted by the guy behind the bar who took our drink order. My friend ordered a Spuntino iced tea - it was so tasty, not sure what he put in it but it was good. I ordered a Camden Pale Ale which was really good too served in a half pint glass tankard.

Monday Must - The Chai Latte

Not fashion related at all, unless you're drinking this whilst wearing your most Christmassy outfit then maybe, but this mix is so good! 

It's the Spiced Chai Latte mix from Drink Me, the very same one used at Cafe Nero apparently. Cafe Nero actually have the best Chai Latte's so I was very excited when I saw this on the shelves of Tesco so I popped it in my basket without a second thought. 

Chai latte's remind me of Christmas so much, they are a perfect been of spices and of course tea, the only other thing that is as good as this is a hot chocolate with all the trimmings. 

If you have never had a chai latte, but you love anything that tastes like cinnamon you have to try one of these! It's so easy to make, heat up some milk in a pan, add in three teaspoons of this blend and mix until combined, pour into your favourite mug, sprinkle some cinnamon no top and you're good to go.

Monday Must - The Velvet Heels

THE velvet shoes, you know the ones, the most perfect shoes that Fearne Cotton showed off on her Instagram yesterday? Then sold out within minutes? Yeah well those ones.

Aren't they just beautiful! These are definitely a winner in my eyes, the perfect shape and the little ankle strap and of course the fact they're dusky pink velvet! *swoon*

Unfortunelty they are out of stock and who knows if they will come back into stock any time soon, but they do have black velvet ones, which look really nice. Obviously not as impressive but still, they're very sweet.

Very tempted, as my birthday is this month and I would love some new birthday heels! But with a pair of heels I would have to buy a dress to go with!

Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market

Happy December! 
Now that it is the magical month of December it's time to get festive! So myself, my boyfriend and a friend decided to go to the Winchester Christmas market. I had never been there before and I was pleasantly surprised. I already love Winchester - the chilled atmosphere, the range of restaurants and the history all draw me in. Plus for this month the Cathedral has been turned into a Christmas wonderland!
